New York, NY

In numerous global studies, people report a wide range of emotional reactions (not all of which are negative) to the climate crisis, including fear, rage, hope, anxiety, grief, interest, and frustration. How do we cope with this ever-turning wheel of emotions so that they inspire rather than defeat us?

In this celebration of Earth Day, New York Insight Meditation Center invites you to join award-winning author and advocate Anya Kamenetz, one of the country’s leading experts on climate change and mental health, and New York Insight core team member and longtime climate journalist Jay Michaelson, to explore the wheel of climate emotions (based on the pioneering work of Panu Pihkala) and how we as Buddhists, meditators, and engaged citizens can work with it skillfully. In conversation and in meditation, we’ll explore noticing and accommodating our emotions, building resilience, and working with the energies of these emotions in the body. Perhaps most of all, we’ll join together to build community — to know that we’re not alone. In fact, whatever you’re feeling or noticing is a sign of your aliveness, receptivity, and connection to all life. It’s what brings us together.
